October 3rd, 2022: Inventory


What we don’t have yet this year:

          a lot of red in the trees

          outrageous mushrooms

          fall crocuses

          ripe persimmons


          the flock of cedar waxwinga that comes to the fruit tree around the corner

          mornings soggy with dew


What we have already:

          labyrinths of slug trails

          hordes of spiders in the house

          horse chestnuts

          harvest moon

          one rose on my rosebush


What we have lost:

          days longer than nights

          blooming lavender

          children's lives on a schoolyard in Philly
